Review This Recipe
baked chichen parmesan
I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY GOOD AND EASY TO MAKE
this recipe is simply mouth watering
Really, Really Good
When I made this dish, everyone in my family loved it. The only thing I did different from the recipe was that I seasoned my chicken first (with season salt, poultry seasoning, onion powder, lemon-pepper seasoning). By seasoning the chicken first, it has much more flavor.
Such an easy recipe with a delicious result -- my favorite kind of recipe! And to top it off, both of my kids liked it. It's almost impossible to find something they will both eat. I am definitely making this again!
My husband and 7 year old son both loved this recipe! We went to a nice Italian restaurant a couple of months ago, and my husband liked this recipe much better than what he ordered in the restaurant. I'm definitely making this again!
I made this for me and my roommates and I have to say it was fantastic not only was it all gone but they asked me to make more as a dessert. It was very very good and very easy to follow.
Even Better when you get creative!
I thought this was sooooo good! I was very impressed with the taste. Being a mother of 18 month old twins it is hard finding something so fast and so good. I loved it the first time I made it and I even screwed up. It says to add grated parmesan. well, I added the shredded parmesan as well to the breading and it made the chicken crunchier and the parmesan flavor come out 10 time more. I also thought the marinara sauce was a little on the weak side and I am not much for marinara. So, what I did was made spaghetti sauce and added a few different spices. Then I just made regular spaghetti noodles and had the chicken top that. I loved this meal! It is great and fast A+ on my side.
I love chicken parmesan! The flavour is great as well as the texture.
2 Thumbs Up
I found this recipe to be very delicious. The one thing that I do different is before I add the cheese I add a spoonful of the sauce to each piece of chicken....very mouth- watering.
easy n good
This is a great recipie for an easy dinner. The chicken was very moist, The only complaint that i had was that the pasta sauce wasn't as flavorful as it could have been. Next time i will use a different sauce.
HAD TO UNBUCKLE MY PANTS
THIS RECIPE WILL PUMMEL YOUR TASTE BUDS INTO SUBMISSION. AS YOU EAT THAT FIRST BITE, YOU WILL BE CAST INTO A EUPHORIC WHIRL, EXPANDING YOU CONSCIOUSNES TO THE LIKES OF BUDDHA. I FOAM AT THE MOUTH THINKING ABOUT MAKING IT AGAIN. IF I WERE A CHICKEN, I WOULD BEG TO BE SLAUGHTERED AND TURNED INTO THIS DELIGHT.
I made this today and found it very flavorful and easy to make- only made the chicken though as i had leftover rice. Made my own breadcrumbs from leftover bread dried in the oven- added sum garlic powder too. Soaked the chicken in soy sauce for a few minutes before and it was TASTY. Made it for some workers who were at my house and they all wolfed it down.
This is a very good recipe. The breading keeps the chicken very moist and every one loves it.
This was only the second real meal I've ever made and it turned out great! If I can do it, it must be easy.
My Fiance's new favorite
I have made this dish a few times and my fiancee absolutely loves it. He always asks me to make extra chicken because that's his favorite part. Very simple, pretty healthy, and excellent!
Great with Spaghetti Sauce
My family loved this recipe. It was so good. We only chaged one thing. We used Traditional Spaghetti Sauce. It is the only sauce that we found that was really good and gave a little more flavor.
Loved by All
Simply put, my whole family loved it. My finicky young sons included.
Quick and Tasty
First time I made this and it was great. It was quick and simple, and my family loved it. I would recommend pounding the chicken breast flat.
My whole family absolutely loved this recipe. I would suggest buying the thin chicken breast (if it is available). I used Angel Hair pasta just because that is my preference. And for the dried breads crumbs I used crushed italian seasoned crutons.
My husband asked me to make him chicken parmesan so I looked for the recipe in meals .com .It was very easy to make and my family loved it even my kids.I will definitly make this more often.
I made this tonight. It was so good! I will make this again very soon. Everyone loved it!!!
EASY, EASY, EASY
I substituted the marinara with some homemade spaghetti sauce I had in the freezer and it was AWESOME. Also, I used provolone instead of mozzarella for a little zip.
Quick, Easy and Delicious!
I am a college student who has never cooked chicken in my life. I tried this recipe out one night when I cooked dinner for my boyfriend. I crossed my fingers and hoped that it would turn out okay. He loved it! It was great; better than my favorite Italian restaurant! I have made it several times since. My parents were amazed when they tried it. My advise is to double the batch so you have leftovers. The prep time is quick, the instructions are easy to follow and the result is delicious. Add a salad, pasta and some garlic bread and you'll have a full coarse italin meal in less than 30 minutes! Trust me, you can't screw it up.
I used a different brand marinara and the noodles came out a bit bland. Otherwise it was an easy to make and great tasting recipe.
My family loves this dish. It is so easy and quick! It looked and tasted like I had spent hours on it. This is one of our favorites.
I am just beginning to cook, and I try many recipes. I tried this recipe and for sure I will use it again. I don't find many things that I like to make twice, but this is quick-easy-delicious.
I made this dish last night for my husband and another couple. I must confess that I am not much of a cook. My husband said it was probably one of the best meals I have prepared, and he definitely wants me to make it again. All of the reviews were very helpful. I did use a zestier sauce and added more cheese. I was telling my mother about it, and she wanted the recipe. I said I would have her and my father over for dinner and fix it for them instead! This one's easy to make and a keeper.
One of the Best in the `Burgh
I made this recipe tonight. My boyfriend and friends liked it a lot. I didn't use the sauce it called for because of some of the things people said. I used Ragu and spiced it up a bit. It was delicious! I definitely will be making this again!
Mouth watering experience
This meal is easy, but looks and tastes like it took all day. I substituted bread crumbs with Italian crutons (smashed) and it was wonderful. I do this dish all the time now.
Pretty darn good
I've always wanted to try chicken parmesan but I have a hard time ordering something I'm not sure if I'll like so when I found this recipe I thought "Why not". (If I didn't like it I could always toss it and eat cereal) It was quick and pretty tasty and my husband and 4 kiddos loved it. I still prefer white sauces to red so tonight I'm gonna use an alfredo sauce instead. The best part is I can make the whole meal in minutes and still manage time to go over homework and play with the baby.
What an easy dish to prepare and what an excellent taste. Our grocery store did not carry the marinara brand suggested, but we used Prego Pasta Bake Three Cheese Marinara instead and it was unbelievably delicious! This dish has become one of the family favorites!
This dish was great!! I made it for my little sister's Birthday and she loved it as well as the rest of the family. I will defintely make this one again.
Chicken Tastes Great But!!
Well I got to say that my whole family loved the chicken but all agreed that the sauce needs work. Very Bland..
I had to make this recipe for a school project & I got an A+
on it. I was so happy !! This is really good food. Make it & try it -
u will not be disappointed.
I too thought the marinara sauce needed a little something, sooo I added lots of veggies and made it into a rose sauce. Besides from my few adjustments I was told by my family that it was the best chicken parm that they've ever eaten...even better than a restaurant. A real winner at our house.
This dish was very simple to make and tasted very good! One thing that I may change to the recipe is the sauce. Marinara was sort of bland, I think I will make it with a more flavorful sauce next time. My husband gave it the thumbs up!
Easy & Excellent!
This dinner was excellent. I just made it the other night it was fast & easy and my husband loved it.
My boyfriend and I couldn't find the seasoned bread crumbs so we crushed restaurant style croutons instead. It was absolutely delicious. We've had it many times and still love it.
This was the best chicken I ever made. My sister was over from New York, and she absolutely loved it. It's also my husband's favorite dish.
Simple & Delicious
I am not much of a cook, so I thought this one looked easy enough and I tried it out on my Italian husband. He loved it! I did use a different sauce in a jar and added extra cheese. I will definitely make it again.
this was a very good recipe but instead of the marinara i made my own with basil garlic tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and it was delicious
I sent a review, but for some reason it was not recorded. I tried this dish after reading the reviews and it is simply IRRESISTABLE..and easy and we all like that. My boyfriend and his sister enjoyed it and it was literally not time spent in the kitchen. THANKS
Fast and flexible
This recipe was easy to prepare and very good. Most of the ingredient specifications can be flexible, too, i.e. I used some leftover spaghetti sauce, oregano instead of strict Italian seasoning, regular spaghetti. A good meal for every-day variety.
easy and delicious
this dish was a real hit around my house. i did add some pepper and a pinch of chili powder to the bread crumbs and used breast strips. also, i added mushrooms, onions, garlic and used a different sauce. i will definitely make it again.
I thought this recipe was so easy to make considering I'm not much of a cook. My husband absolutely loved it, he ate all the leftovers.
Superb and Easy
I was brave enough to prepare this for the first time and invited neighbors over for dinner. We all agreed that it is as good as one of our favorite restaurants. A keeper.
I thought it was great, so did my kids and husband(the pickiest eater ever)
Just ok! I didn't think it was that great, but it wasn't bad either.
My husband is not much of a pasta lover, but when I made this meal, he really liked it. Even the kids liked it. Very easy to make and very good to eat.
Excellent and easy!
This is my husband's favorite dish when we go out to eat Italian food. I made for him at home and he absolutely loved it. It was so easy!
